We need points back in circulation.. With DP for points out in full effect.

I see no reason anymore why points are uptight.

It's healthy for the economy to buy and use points with DP option out. It guarantees True DP purchases in the future.

the really bad part is that the DP for points was removed WITHOUT ANY COMMENT ...
heh , that's a pretty big change , but why not anounce a "update" rather than a "remove" ... sounds better , costs less ...

i got the city watch , it could be usefull since I work sometimes too much and I can't check the city every time . But it lacks alot of options , it could be worth it if upgrades were to come , and make it more flexible ( like temporisation of TC checking ( i don't want every 30 seconds , i want 4:30 minutes ) alert for tagged person coming online ... it uses up about 80 Mb and i think it's not worth it .... i bought it because i got lots of points

Well then the option to trade points for DPs shouldn't have been there in the first place, because it seems like a necessity to me now.

Not worth it...I will wait for the upgrade. The question also for those who will buy it, do they have to pay for the upgrade later. Ched does not mention it....with his recent mindset, I do not trust him that much

*sigh*

You think the site wont check the database to see if you have paid the 50 points before dishing out the information to the application? Of course it will.

Well folks, thats it, I've left the game. To those of you who think of me as a friend, I thank you and wish you all the best. Enjoy the game, and take care.

Introducing CityWatch_1.0.

City Watch is a piece of software that you can download on to your computer. It will instantly alert you when you receive new mails or events and when you have maximum energy or nerve. You can also use it to instantly log in to Torn at the click of a button.

This is the first release, the software can be vastly built upon in the future.


CityWatch can be purchased from the points building for 50 points, youll then be taken to the download page.

Thanks.

I will try the new update, too bad i gotta have points for it, that's a major downside to the update, i propose more benefits for the donator than to lure us to become donators because of the updates, its best to turn the product interesting than "force" us to buy it.

Ahahah. I love how this has come out along with the removal of DP for points.

Either way. The more money-focused a game gets, the worse it gets (and the lower the quality of updates).

Funny how that's happened here too...

If you look back through the thread you'll see a download link for it. Knock yourself out. Theres no point in pirating a peice of software that wont work regardless of what you do to the client end. The data is only available to the software IF you purchase the right to get at it by spending the 50 points.

Heres how I see it. Ched has to make money. Fact. No harm in that, we all have to make a living. He runs a business, and businesses have making money as their sole purpose.

So yes, he's paid some developers to make this addon for us. Thanks. Its not something I'll be using, but if you want it and like then more power to you.

Are we forced to use it? No. Are we missing out by using it? No. Are we being forced to use RL cash to get it? Not if we already have the points, and as Passie said, there are means to gain those points within the game. No biggie, just not the worlds greatest peice of software.

Where I do take issue is with the underhanded way that he has used this release as a way to distract us from the fact that we can no longer buy donator status with points. This wasnt announced, this wasnt pre-warned, just BAM... its gone. That to me was a cowardly move, and the mauling he is getting in this thread for it is due and just. At least have the courage of your convictions and tell the community that you are doing it and why. Sneaking it in while our backs are turned is underhanded, low, and unworthy of you.

I dont think there is a single player of this game who wouldnt thank you for the work you've put in (okay, so maybe there are), but I'm sure that the VAST majority will be extremely annoyed that the benefits we have held by having donator status are going to be removed. This is something we have come to expect now, and accept as a standard part of the game. By removing the ability to buy with points you have only further alienated an already fractious customer base.

I also have issues with the fact that it is a donation. Is it? Is it really? By removing the means to gain those benefits with in-game points, are you not making the DP a commodity that we are to now buy from you rather than be given as a reward for our donation? Your own admins have said that to gain benefits you may have to pay for them (Clansy, in this very thread). Well, from where I'm sat that makes the Donator Pack a purchase, and I therefore have rights under law regarding them.

Also, this would mean that you would be required to pay tax on those purchases, would it not? I really hope you have checked this move through with your lawyers, as you could be opening yourself up to a whole can of worms.

If the DP is a purchased item, then the benefits derived from DP are also my legal property. If, for example, I choose to donate those points to my faction for safekeeping, and someone removes them as part of a faction scam, that makes you legally liable for the return of my property. Items that I purchase with the money I would make from the sale of a DP would be legal property, and should I be scammed out of that property, you again would be legally liable for that.

It matters not what your policy towards scamming is, thats the law, and you can be held accountable to it. These are just examples. I'm sure the legal situation will be a whole lot more complex than that, and as I said, I would hope that you would have taken legal advice before making this move.

If I can make a (somewhat late) suggestion... instead of removing the current benefits of donator status to all but paying customers, and hence annoying your entire customer base, would it not have been better to introduce a seperate higher level of donation status with higher benefits, which would not give you a tradeable item and would ONLY be available by cash purchase? Your existing players would be happy (well, as happy as this lot can be), and would then have the option of an increased benefit level rather than having our gaming experience reduced when we have all come to regard it as standard?

You need to take more care of your customers. The state of the economy is such that $5 a month DOES make a difference to many people, and when you couple in the unrest and dissatisfaction you are creating with this "update", you have 2 things: An unhappy customer base who is unwilling to spend their hard earned cash on buying your DPs. Result: reduced player count, reduced income.

And what is it saying to the new players you are so desperately targetting? One glance at this thread would have them running for the hills. Customer care! Keep the customer happy, and not slavering for your blood, and watch your income soar.

Much love

Entropy


Cheds thinking is out with the old and in with the new...players who dont know how it use to be and wont complain...untill they have been around for a while then he wont be arsed if they leave too....a steady flow of noobs a month is what he wants not all us oldies banging on about how things use to be..........next update invade Poland

Im not donating to pay for things like City Watch!!It isnt worth a dime of time or money and nobody can say otherwise.

1 Problem Ched...

1 Person will pay 50 Points for this and then share it secretly with others.

May want to think about that.


as if it wouldnt be coded with your specific account details? if it isn't he needs to think about his life.
